Enviromoonbattery Is a Religion

Arguments continue to accrue to have enviromoonbattery classified as a religion so that we can see if the ACLU will step in and save us from having it imposed by the government. As Joseph Brean notes at National Post:

[T]he green movement now exhibits the same psychology of compliance as religion.

He quotes best-selling author Michael Crichton, who calls environmentalism "the religion of choice for urban atheists … a perfect 21st century re-mapping of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs and myths."

Long-term predictions regarding the climate, like those regarding the economy, simply aren't possible. The only thing we know with confidence is that there will continue to be change. But faith allows us to see the future we want to see with absolute certainty, which is how moonbats are able to know for sure that we're headed toward their answer to the Apocalypse, global warming.

Once prophets like Al Gore have divined the future, "scientific" models are used to "prove" whatever needs proving. Isaac Newton's deterministic science died with Albert Einstein, but now it's coming back, no longer as science but as a cult whose monks wear white lab coats.

In addition to prophets and an Apocalypse, environmentalism offers an array of saints and heretics, as well as sacred texts belched out by organizations like the UN's IPCC. Using energy-saving light bulbs like the Boston Globe's laughable Ellen Goodman will not change the weather, but it does serve the purpose of the votive candle. Ecotourism junkets fulfill the role of pilgrimages. Instead of salvation, we now have the vague concept of "sustainability." Even tithing has been replicated, not only by tax money wasted on bogus reports and higher prices caused by crippled industries, but by scams like Bullfrog Power and Offsetters that sell the equivalent of indulgences to those who have sinned against liberals' pagan goddess by participating in civilization.

It will come as no surprise to connoisseurs of moonbattery that the elitist Left represents the devolution of our civilization. Its beloved Gaia Hypothesis, which regards the Earth as a living organism, "confirms the return of a sort of idolatrous animism," as Brean puts it.

Something has to fill the vacuum left by the Left's war on Christianity. Islam has been doing this in Europe, but it will have to compete with the human-hating Gaia worship personified by Al Gore. To put it mildly, neither is an improvement on our Christian heritage.

The moonbat Moses.

On a tip from Bergbikr.

No surprise here that science has its own priesthood.
When the Creator is negated, the vacuum must be filled.
These nature-worshippers aren't an improvement on
the primitive peoples of eons ago. These blind bats only flatter
themselves by adopting a more sophisticated vocabulary.

Just remember..."sophistication" and "sophistry" share the
same root. (Matt 11:25)

Every time I see that picture I realise that Al Gore really does blow hot air...

You mean you haven't decided to live a "carbon neutral" lifestyle yet VH?

Considering the base matter of which humans are made up (H2O and Carbon being the two biggies IIRC), the only way to live a 'carbon neutral' lifestyle is to eat a bullet made of lead and 'return to your beloved Mother Gaia'. Sadly, the Envirokooks aren't simply offing themselves to save the world from us. One can only hope for a Jim Jones to come along and spread the Kool-Aid amidst these supplicants.

I know all about those deranged eco- freaks, and how they made their own pagan Gaia faith because of their immense hatred of Christianity. I heard at one Earth First (Spit) gathering, they had a ceremony known as a 'Council of All Beings.' In it, the smelly eco- freaks each meditate on a life form, such as a mouse or a blade of grass, and continue to meditate on it until they seem to become that mouse or blade of grass. Then, they each stand before the group and talk about mousetraps and lawn mowers and how it feels to be oppressed by humans. The whole lot of them belong in straightjackets.

"connoisseurs of moonbattery'

had to laugh out loud on that one!

If I swished moonbattery around in my mouth like a taste of a pinot noir, it would be a horrible vintage, not worth feeding to your dog. Si I\d spit it out.

"[T]he green movement now exhibits the same psychology of compliance as religion."

Brean hit the nail on the head with that statement. Too bad the nail was on Al Gores head.

14th day below 32 degrees - Avg temp 35. Most of the time its been in the single digits during the day and sub zero at night.

This cold snap began the day the environuts announced their Global Warming hysteria report (political summary) that would be issued Feb 2nd later that week; how ironic.
